Testimonials

Fabian Berger

Fabian Berger

I've been into automotive design before and sketched a lot, but the tutorials at Intank really taught me the fundamentals. Through the videos, I was able to improve my skills, but the live tutorials pushed me even more! The individual feedback was always extremely helpful and motivated me a lot!

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don't know yet what I should focus on?

No problem, that's what the onboarding meetings are made for. We will review your work and talk to you about your aims and ambitions, so we can figure out what you should focus on and what would be the best way to support you.

What is an on boarding meeting?

Here we will get to understand your aims and what you would like to learn to decide which available tutor would be the best to support you in the following weeks.

What software do I need?

Which programs will be necessary depends on your aim for the tutoring, in many cases pen and paper is enough. If you would like to train in a specific program like Photoshop or a CAD program like Alias, of course you will need to have it ready to use to get efficient support. Most of the software have free versions for students, or free trial versions.

What meeting tools do I need?

Any device suitable for video call with a modern browser would be enough. You can use your phone, tablet or PC. If you use a PC, please make sure you have a working headset or microphone.

Youtube is full of free tutorials, why should I take this particular course?

That's a reasonable question. Youtube can be a good source. However, we can guarantee professional quality and a highly efficient education structure. That, in combination with the personal guidance and industry insights of a professional car designer, is the most valuable part for you here. That's why.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes, you will get a certificate after you have completed the course. However the skills you build will unlock new opportunities for you, more than any degree or certificate.

Do I get a refund when I don't like it?

Yes, if you are not happy after the first one on one meeting, you can contact us before the second meeting to get a refund.

Will the live session be really just me and the tutor, no other students?

Yes, the live sessions are aimed to be as personal and tailored to you as possible, to meet your specific needs for training.

How come that car designers are offering training like this?

Thats a good question! Our tutors do not only have great skills but also have a passion to share the knowledge they have gained through their experience. Even though the prices for our live tutoring don't reflect the rates of a professional car designer, thanks to this passion we are able to offer this service for this price.

Can I get a discount?

The prices for the live tutoring are already calculated to be as affordable as possible to make them available for everyone.
